New web-based course launches with over 60 students

The first module of the Equine Science Certificate, Equine Management, opened in May with over 60 students enrolled! This unique mode of learning offers the industry research-driven education in a multidimensional format. The course incorporates traditional text book learning with state-of-the-art web interaction. Students communicate on-line with other students as
well as an instructor. The course uses video and CD Rom to introduce each section using a typical student, “Chris”, who sets the stage and provides direction through each exercise. This practical approach incorporates the latest research in horse care for students
wanting to learn more about horse housing, seasonal, environmental and arena management. The course includes assignements and quizzes in each section. This is the first module of six offered for the Equine Science Certificate. Students completing all the modules with an
average of 75% or more are recognized with honours.

The Equine Science Certificate is a collaboration among the Equine Research Centre (Guelph) Inc., the award-winning office of Open Learning at the University of Guelph and CanAdapt. For more details visit
